THE POWER OF : T-SHIRT, JEANS, COAT, AND HEELS - SPRING CHIC OUTFIT I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. My weekend, go-to outfit has been a graphic t-shirt or a plain t-shirt with a fun quote on it, some unique jeans, a coat, and some heels. Something about the casual, everyday look with the coat and heels, which are two formal items, are so adorable and perfect for spring.



If you are going for a more business like outfit, you can use a blazer, or a more structured jacket so it gives a more sophisticated look. Stick to a strict color palette and add a fun bag that incorporates the colors in your outfit.



If you want a more high fashioned, everyday chic outfit, take a fun, oversized coat and some ripped boyfriend jeans. Cuff them at the end to show off your fun heels!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and got some outfit inspiration. Make sure to share this post if you enjoyed it. Kisses to my neonators!

XOXO,

MINI LIFE UPDATE : GOING TO TUSCANY + WHAT'S IN MY CARRYON BAG I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here! I am one to travel a lot, and if you have been part of this crazy fam for around a year, you would know that I traveled a lot last year, which I am extremely grateful for. This year, although I am not traveling as much, I am going on some big summer trips. I am going to a three week summer camp and, I will be traveling to Tuscany!

I have always wanted to go to Italy, and the fact that I get to go is seriously mind blowing. I am going before my school year starts up. I am honestly so excited to go and take pictures and sight seeing as well. I will try to upload pictures for my traveling diary series, which everyone knows I have to do! I decided that because I told you guys where I am going this summer, I would also do another traveling related post and show you guys what is in my carryon bag, so let's get started!

HOW TO DRESS LIKE : BELLA HADID : STREET STYLE I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I have showed you guys how to dress like Zendaya, Gigi Hadid, and Selena Gomez (I will link those posts at the end of this one if you haven't checked that out yet or you are interested), so I thought I would share with you guys some outfits of Bella Hadid's that I absolutely adore, and you guy scan recreate with items from your closet.

If you don't know who Bella Hadid is, she is Gigi Hadid's sister. Bella is a famous model who made her mark last year and is a huge fashion inspiration of mine, so let's get started.

1)

CLOSET LIFE HACKS + ORGANIZATION TIPS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. My closet is personally always cluttered and messy, and I am in the process of spring cleaning, so I thought I would share with you guys how to tackle your closet space with some life hacks and organization tips, so let's get started!

1) FRONT AND BACK SHOE METHOD



If you are the type of person who debates on what type of shoes they want to wear for the day, I recommend placing your shoes in small cubicles. One shoe should be faced in front and the rest will be in the back. That way, you can see all angles of the shoe, what type of heel it is, etc.

2) SET UP YOUR OUTFIT



All you have to do for this life hack/DIY is use the top of a soda can. You can slip one of the holes through the hook, and use another hanger to put it through the other hole. You can hang pants and shirts and set out your outfit.

3) USE DRAWER ORGANIZATIONS



You can buy drawer organizers, mostly customizable, to store sunglasses, watches, belts, jewelry, etc.

4) USE A TOWEL R…

FASHION TAG 2017 EDITION I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I wanted to do the fashion tag for you guys today so that you can get to know my style and fashion taste, so let's get started.

1) I LOVE TO SHOP FOR MY CLOTHES AT...

Brandy Melville, Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Pacsun, and Romwe

2) STORE YOU LIKE TO VISIT BUT DON'T USUALLY BUY ANYTHING FROM

H&M

3) LAST ACCESSORY YOU BOUGHT

I got this star/moon inspired bracelet/anklet from Lucky.

4) DO YOU OWN SOMETHING YOU'VE NEVER WORN?

I do, and hopefully other people can relate. I have a Vince Camuto denim jacket that my mom owned, and gave to me, and it just doesn't fit me right. I will throw it over an outfit but I won't actually wear it, if that makes sense. I've been meaning to give it back to her but I keep on forgetting. There are a couple more things, but that's the thing that came up first.

5) I PUT A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO WHAT I WEAR, THROW ON CLOTHES, OR LIKE TO STAY COMFY?

It honestly depends on how I am feeling or whe…

WHAT TO WEAR WITH : BOYFRIEND JEANS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I love boyfriend jeans because they are so comfortable. The loose fitting in the leg area with comfortable bands are so great for spring. I find that they are helpful around this time of year when the weather is transitioning from rainy weather to summer weather. The long fit is great for cold days, and the loose fitting makes it breathable for hotter days. I wanted to give you guys several ways on how you can style boyfriend jeans. Before we get started, I just want to let you guys know that you don't have to go out and buy expensive pairs of boyfriend jeans. You can go to your local thrift store and find an adorable pair, and even iron on some patches to add your own personal touch. Don't worry, your wallet won't explode! Anyways, let's get started!

1) BODYSUIT + BOYFRIEND JEANS



I am a firm believer that any outfit is better when you have a tighter fitting item, and a loose item. Bodysuits are great as a staple piece because th…

SPRING PLAYLIST 2017 I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots. I love music and listen to a new song almost every single day. There has been a lot of great songs released this year. I thought that I would share with you guys my spring playlist, so let's get started.

1) ISSUES BY JULIA MICHAELS



I absolutely love this song. I think that Julia is a great singer and has a beautiful voice. She also writes famous songs for other artists, such as Good for You by Selena Gomez and partnered up with Justin Bieber to write Sorry.

2) PERFECT BY ED SHEERAN



Ed Sheeran's latest album Divide is very well known for the famous song Shape of You. Although it is a catchy song, I personally love Perfect off of his album. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful and get me every single time!

3) STAY BY ALESSIA CARA AND ZEDD



I love Alessia Cara's voice, so when I heard that she collaborated with Zedd to create a song, I had to listen to it, and I absolutely love it.

4) SAY YOU WON'T LET GO BY JAMES ARTHUR



Again, I love this…

HOW TO KEEP A DORM ROOM NEAT + ORGANIZED I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. For any of you guys who go to a boarding school or are in closet and you have a dorm, you know that they are a lot smaller than a typical bedroom, and it is so hard to organize a dorm room because it is such a small place to work with. I thought I would help those out who want some help organizing a dorm room or a small space in general, so let's get started.

1) USE BINS




Using bins will help you organize your belongings and store them away from all the clutter that may fill up your room.

2) HANGING SHELVES



Hanging shelves are an easy way to showcase some small decorations that you don't want to have laying around your room, and can look amazing over a desk.

Bar carts are great if you don't always have time to eat meals because you are studying. You can keep snacks or bottles of water and store it near your desk. When you want to grab a snack, it can be right by your side.

4) CLOSET STORAGE



Dorm room closets are extremely…

HOW TO : TRANSFORM AN EMPTY ROOM TO A CRAFT ROOM I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. I love to upload DIY posts for you guys, and I know that a lot of you like to craft as well. I thought that I would give you guys a suggestion, if you have an empty room in your home that you have no idea what to do with. You could turn it into a fun craft room. If you are a mom, this could be your room away from the kids, or if you are living alone and you want to start up a new hobby. I'm going to show you guys some ideas you can include in your craft room, as well as some easy life hacks for organizing, so let's get started!

1) PEGBOARD



(Keep in mind that if you don't have a whole entire room dedicated for crafts, you can transform a coat closet into a space to keep craft supplies as well.)

Pegboards are amazing because you can customize your organizing space to your needs. You can hang up ribbon or twine, and have shelves to hold paints, yarn, anything that you want easily accessible. It also gives a fun, clean crisp to your room…

DIY PINTEREST RECIPES FOR SPRING I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Honestly, I have been so happy that I have been posting every other day for you guys, so I hope that you guys like the more frequent posts. Today, I wanted to show you guys some recipes that I have been seeing everywhere, and I thought would be so adorable to recreate for spring break, or even during summer, so let's get started.

1) PINEAPPLE BOWLS



•Pineapple
•Sharp or serrated knife
•Fruit of choice
•Large spoon

Cut your pineapple in half and cut out an outline of your pineapple with your knife and scoop out the inside. You can refrigerate the middle of the pineapple and save it as a snack, or keep it as a fruit to put inside. Once you scooped out everything, add your choice of fruit inside.

2) TOMATO AND AVOCADO TOAST



•Toast
•Avocado
•Tomatoes

This breakfast is extremely helpful for you and you can play around with it. I like to cut my avocado in half and take out the pit, and use a fork to mash it up into chunks. I then spread it over the…

HOW TO STUDY FOR FINALS I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. Since finals are coming up, I thought I would give you guys some tips on how you can study efficiently for finals, so let's get started!

1) REWRITE NOTES



I don't know if this is just me, but I will find myself looking back at notes to study with and they are extremely sloppy or I can't understand what I wrote, or I just want to make them more organized, and I find notes essential when studying, so I definitely would recommend rewriting any notes that you don't feel would help you.

2) WRITE OUT YOUR STUDYING SCHEDULE



Right when you get home or the night before, I highly suggest that you write down your studying schedule. I like to pace out my studying when I get home, because if I don't, I procrastinate and wait until the last second to complete my homework, or I will keep on studying and not take breaks to get water or a healthy snack, which are also extremely important, so writing out what subject you are going to study for …

SPRING TAG 2017 EDITION I NEON DOTS

Hey neonators, it's neon dots here. As you all may or may not know, I am obsessed with doing tags, so I wanted to do one dedicated to Spring, so let's get started!

1) WHAT THREE COLORS REMIND YOU OF SPRING?

Coral, light blue and lavender. Mostly pastel colors remind me of spring, but coral is definitely one of my favorite colors that I love to wear this time around.

2) WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU WEAR WHEN SPRING STARTS?

Because I live in California, the weather changes all the time, but if it is okay, I will wear a cute t-shirt with some high waisted jeans and my Keds. You can add a baseball cap or a bomber, but it is my basic essential fashion items, especially because I am still in school and I want to stay comfortable, yet cute.

3) WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DITCH DURING SPRING?

I typically wear sweaters all year round because they are extremely comfortable, but this year, I am definitely not wearing them as much as I typically do, so this year, I'm not wearing sweate…
